Stuart - this sounds like an air problem - you should perform the following test. With the air nailer close to the compressor you must monitor the airpressure after the gun fires. it sounds like the air is not gettting through diapram fast enough or there is a blockage in line. Blockage in line is not suspected for the following reason . It sounds like the air hose is holding enough air to fire 2-4 nails and then you must wait for the line to fill up again and then it fires ok. The pressure regulator out to the line controls this and they do fail. try this test and report back to me - I know I can solve this for you as I have extensive background in compressor and the like.

The most common problem with this nailer is the plastic seal that sits on top of the cylinder. This seal (ususlly white, yellow or black in color ) will cause the nailer to leak lots of air out top of gun. Examine seal for cracks and replace as necessary; the part number is 402725 and is available at www.toolpartsdirect.com This should stop the rapid air leak. After installing the new seal, if you have a very small constant leak out top of the gun then remove the screw holding the headvalve in place and check for small scratches where the orings contact headvalve. Use very fine sandpaper (300 to 400 grit) to remove scratches. Clean and re-use the same orings using silicone grease instead of oil and re-assemble. This should stop all leaks. Silicone grease is available at Lowes lumber in the plumbing department. It is used to lube orings in faucets. If you have more questions about this gun please email, Good Luck

Do you have gas cylinder in,if so is gas expiration date on bottom of cannister,change gas to current fresh date. Also open nose of nailer and see if a fastner has logged ,remove and push plunger pin back into body,be sure to remove battery during these tests.

Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

Testimonial: "Thanks for that, i will look into it! Thanks for your time.... Cheers, Steven. ;-)"
The tool needs to be completely torn down, cleaned out, two orings inside need replaced, re-lubed and re-assembled. takes a technician about 1 hour to do it right. I believe either the orings or dirt is your problem. If blade doesn't return its probably the orings.
